Yuk Bikin Coklat Truffles !

1/2 pound bittersweet chocolate (merek Lindt or Belcolade) 1/2 pound semisweet chocolate compound 1 cup heavy cream 2 tablespoons Grand Marnier (if you like it..) 1 tablespoon prepared coffee 1/2 teaspoon good vanilla extract Confectioners' sugar Cocoa powder

  • Chop the chocolates finely with a sharp knife. Place them in a heat-proof mixing bowl.
  • Heat the cream in a small saucepan until it just boils.

  • Turn off the heat and allow the cream to sit for 20 seconds.

  • Pour the cream through a fine-meshed sieve into the bowl with chocolate.

  • With a wire whisk, slowly stir the cream and chocolates together until the chocolate is completely melted.

  • Whisk in the Grand Marnier, if using, coffee, and vanilla.

  • Set aside at room temperature for 1 hour.

With 2 teaspoons, spoon round balls of the chocolate mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate for 35 minutes or until firm. Roll each dollop of chocolate in your hands to roughly make a round ball. Roll in confectioners' sugar, cocoa powder, or both. These will keep refrigerated for weeks, but serve at room temperature.

I have tried this recipe today, and it was sooooo easy to be prepared...As we are in Indonesia, maybe you can use other dark and bittersweet Coklat compound such as Tulip or Collata ...

Pids, heavy cream itu sebetulnya cream sama seperti whipping cream, hanya kadar fatnya kalo whip di 35.5-35.7% kalo heavy di 47%. kalo kamu masih cari boleh contact saya. Saya ada punya heavy cream import from australia.
